thanks He Lives. I guess it's possible that some of the ancient jack straws sort of, vaguely, almost start like BTW.

you should check out some 90s versions. the rave-up at the end can be almost as good as anything they do.

For the record, JS is mostly in A major, though the introductory "we can share" is in E>Fm (C#>B>A)- then it goes back to A and pretty much stays there. The 'on the run' jam is DM>Bm>A>resolves to E, but in this case the E is the 5 in A.

Same for BTW - mostly in A major, though there are points when in goes into D, during the jam sections.

i always thought of jack straw in 'E', since the soloing is done there, and the song always resolves there

BTW, the body of the song also seems to always resolve to 'E', but yeah, in the end section, turns into the 'A' jam

Yeah, I've been listening to so much 71-74 lately, I had started to think all Jack Straws began with Bobby's lone strumming, but later on, the whole band starts it together, it's true.
